What position in the standings could give us the best chance to have a good playoffs ?


3rd in the division or a wild card ?

Is there something to play for in Canesland ?

Like i've predicted Dats-Z and Kroner wont play..and that's a good thing.

Yes there is something to play for.

Playing time in the playoffs for the non-rested players. (Jurco, Weiss, Ferraro, Marchenko --these guys can make a statement showing that they deserve playing time when it counts)

Maybe finding out who will play net.- I hope Mrazek starts and gets a shut-out while being outshot by the Canes.

Getting the mystical number 100 in the point standings. Even though most don't give the Wings a chance to win a first round it really doesn't look that bad in the standings if you end up with 100 points and your opponent has 106 if it's Tampa for example.

Use it to solidify the number 2 power play unit. The power play is something that got the Wings through the last couple of months but it has been lacking a bit lately. Getting a 2nd unit working could help out a lot.

Lastly, a win by the Wings ensures that Ottawa, who only needs a tie today to get in, will play either the Rangers or Montreal (only a tie with Toronto require to stay ahead of Tampa) in the first round.
I think Ottawa wins either of those series and that opens things up in the Eastern conference playoffs.

Babcock confirms Mrazek starting. Said that doesn't mean he's the playoff goalie

...

Kronwall, Smith. Datsyuk, Zetterberg out tonight

The Sens beat Philly so they're in... 1 point ahead of the Wings.

So now the last PO seed goes to either the Bruins or Pens... as much as I hate both those two teams, it would be mo' funny to see Kid87 and crew booking early Tee-times this spring.

btw= pick your poison... Habs, Bolts or the Rangers--- hmmmmmm

I'd like to see the Sens against the Habs. They can knock them out !

..but i'd love to see us third in the division...looks better ! But i'd rather not face the Habs or Bolts in the first round. My ideal matchup would be the Pens..but its impossible i presume.

Well it's 1-0 Wings with 7 minutes left in the 2nd period. This game will not be mistaken for a playoff type game.
Both teams playing very careful but it is especially surprising that Carolina aren't playing harder. It's their last home game and you would think they would want to entertain their fans a bit more.
Boring team the Canes.

Wings win 2-0 as they add an empty net goal.
Mrazek with the shutout. Last five minutes of the games was more exciting to watch.

I think with the win that Mrazek should start in the playoffs against Montreal or Tampa.
Still undecided who they will play.

Wings end up with 100 points.

Well, I enjoyed it. Who will be the playoff goalie is really interesting now.

100 pt season and the #3 spot in the division not bad considering the last month of hockey.

I'd start Mrazek in the playoffs but in all honesty both should have a short leash. We need consistency in the position so until we see that we'll need to play em both.

Three or so years ago I would be thrilled with a Lightning versus Wings match up in the playoffs back when the Wings owned the Lightning. The last couple years with Bishop in net for the local team 'round here they have won more games than I have liked but starting this week they really count. Maybe the Wings with Mrazek in net can take down the Lightning in round one. One good thing is I get to watch all the games on Fox Sports Network which is so much better than NBC or Versus.
